Security & Fraud Prevention Keep cardholders' information confidential by never storing their data

Data breaches can happen anytime, anywhere. So take the first preventive step with Genius’ hacker-fighting technology. As a customer facing, EMV enabled solution, Genius utilizes tokenization and encryption to ensure customers' card data is safe, reducing the chance of security risks and fraud.

Multi-channel, Multi-location Tokens

Converts sensitive information to a token – merchants never handle customer data throughout online, in-store, and mobile transactions.

P2P Encryption

As soon as the credit card is swiped, confidential data is converted to indecipherable code for an added level of security.

Level 1 PCI Compliant

We are compliant to the highest levels of PCI and offer PCI support services (ControlScan and ASV)
